The Hotel Pax Montana is a reminiscent of the glory days of the Swiss Tourism.. The hotel has been completely renovated and has been left in its original state. The rooms are equipped with comfortable beds and a small desk; however with not much decoration, They look sterile and bare. There is no TV. Part of the well-being of the... More

The view from this place makes up for any of it's shortcomings. I loved the sound of the cowbells ringing all day and night - so soothing. As others have said, the rooms themselves are very simple, but with that kind of location, you shouldn't be hanging out in your room anyway. I was on the 3rd floor and if... More

This hotel is an amazing example of life in Switzerland. It is high up on a hill, with a view to die for no matter where you look. The accommodations are simple (no TV, radio, etc) but comfortable and the food was pretty good too. The best part was falling asleep at night to the tinkling of cow and sheep... More

This hotel looks great from outside.we found it difficult to find the parking area behind the building. Good and friendly reception. Room very bare: one bed, one table and chair, one set of drawers.no cupboard, just a set up with hangers.no decoration of any kind. No tv, no minibar. Excellent restaurant with panoramic view.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July while on a Trafalgar Tour. Before we arrived, our tour director advised us that we would be staying outside of Lucerne at a hotel with no TV's and our room keys were just that...room keys. We couldn't get the bus close to the entrance and we... More

One of my prime irritations is the unclear bedding configuration on Hotel and booking websites. Again, a room with a single bed for me and my travel companion, instead of twin room ordered. Luckily, they still had a room in the hotel and allocated that to us. For the late night stress, I deduct one point in the rating (otherwise... More

If you stay at the Hotel PaxMontana allow yourself enough time to enjoy the breath-taking setting and the exquisite hotel. You will immediately experience a powerful and positive energy that makes you want to live every corner of the hotel. The amazing views over the lake and over the Alps are priceless. The external terraces are strategically positioned and the... More

We spent two nights in this hotel in August 2014, but we stayed in the annex building (the guesthouse) vice the main building because it was all booked up. The check in and checkout are at the main building up the hill, about a 3-4 min walk. My review is for the room at the annex vice the main building.... More

We stayed here on 3/08/14 on an over night journey. We stayed here before for 5 nights about 5 years ago and loved it then. Well this time was every bit enjoyable, only thing wrong was we only had one night this time. Food was excellent, served in restaurant with beautiful views over the valley below. Staff were exceptional and... More
